Theodore Dreiser

American writer and publisher.
Assure a man that he has a soul and then frighten him with old wives' tales as to what is to become of him afterward, and you have hooked a fish, a mental slave.More Theodore Dreiser quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
How dismal is progress without publicity.More Theodore Dreiser quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Innate sensuousness rarely has any desire for accuracy, no desire for precise information. It basks in sunshine, bathes in color, dwells in a sense of the impressive and the gorgeous, and rests there. Accuracy is not necessary except in the case of aggressive, acquisitive natures, when it manifests itself in a desire to seize. True controlling sensuousness cannot be manifested in the most active dispositions, nor again in the most accurate.More Theodore Dreiser quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We who feel that justice is not being done have but one thing to do: that is fight, by argument, by example, by insistence on fair play wherever we have the power to do so. The rest is in the hands of the Lord, or nature, which swings, apparently, from one extreme to another.More Theodore Dreiser quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Let no one underestimate the need of pity. We live in a stony universe whose hard, brilliant forces rage fiercely.More Theodore Dreiser quotes [09/23/2011 07:09:08]
